8"x10" felt busy book (quiet book, or activity book, buckle book)
this activity book is adorable. great for toddlers and preschoolers . hand sewn, felt and fabric pages of kids favorite learning activities. perfect for plane rides, long car trips, church, waiting rooms or just before bed. this book can keep kids busy and entertained just about any time while learning colors, shapes, abc's, fine motor skills and more. the pages are colorful and kid friendly. some pages feature buttons, snaps, zippers, velcrow, buckles, finger puppets and more. my books are fabric pages sewn together so that little fingers wont get pinched in binder rings.
ive perfected my books to hold the attention of young minds! i take the feedback from other children who have books that i made (my son being one of them) and ive learned what they like best! the best part is they can be customized to suit each childs indivual interests.
my books are inspired by gavin, my 3 year old son, he loves his busy book and settles down before bed and we play with it together. he often "inspects" my busy books before they get mailed off and i usually have to make him a new page for his book after he sees a new idea! many of my ideas for these books actually started from ideas that he gave me! this is something that can be enjoyed for your childs younger years and can be passed down for years of enjoyment! i plan on keeping gavins books around for my 5 month old son, chase.
my busy books are made with eco friendly felt made with recycled water bottles, and most of the fabric i use is "upcycled" or reused from clean used garments!
spot cleaning only is recommended for these books
